Mexico's President Vicente Fox was disrespected by Leftists in Mexico’s Congress. He became the first modern Mexican President forced NOT to give a Congressional State of the Nation Address due to Congressional rioting.
Well here is some evidence that this Latin American nation has not fully acquired the foundations of a representative democracy. It is an incredible lack of decorum and protocol to disrespect the office of your elected leader, even if you disagree with his/her politics.
It is evident that Mexico is as polarized politically as America; the difference being that rioting is evidence of an unstable government and nation. This kind of instability is a sign that an authoritarian government of the Left or the Right is around the corner. That is something Mexico is used to.
